And the fact that Judy Garland’s rendition of Over the Rainbow makes me cry every time I hear it was reason enough for me to see Judy, the feature film bio-pic starring Renee Zellweger. I’m also a VERY big fan of Renee’s. As Roxie Hart in the musical movie,Continue reading “Judy, Judy, Judy…and Renee.”

As I took a shower, I looked out my window and saw large crows gathering on the rooftop…

There is only one man I’d leave my husband for: 007.

Okay, maybe I wouldn't actually leave Martin. I'd come home at mealtimes. I'm just talkin' dessert now, the amuse bouche, when I rhapsodize about James Bond…well really, the James Bond, as epitomized by Daniel Craig. He's the perfect 007 for these times. He's so spot on in the role, that I don't even mind hisContinue reading “There is only one man I’d leave my husband for: 007.”

NotContinue reading “10 very broad hints that Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing the wrong hat…”
